Northern Spark, the all-night art festival, the Twin Cities’ nuit blanche, is back TONIGHT for its third incarnation. This year it is exclusively happening in Lowertown St. Paul. I know, I know—St. Paul. “ALL THE WAY OVER THERE??” Yes, all the way over there. But it’s a blessing in disguise: you’ll get a completely different experience than the last two years and get to explore a part of the Twin Cities you probably don’t frequent.
Since there are a million projects and it can be overwhelming to look through them all, I’ve picked out three that you NEED to check out tonight. Write ‘em down:
1) Gossip Orchestra: Adam Conrad, Benjamin Kelly, and Max McDougal
2) Ghosts of the Twin Cities: Cindy Sherman Bishop and Martha Bourne
3) Hover: Alicia Dvorak and Mitchell Dose

See you there doodz.
Movies In The Parks kicks off TONIGHT with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off at the picturesque Lake Harriet Bandshell. There are benches, so no need to bring a blanket to sit on, but you’ll definitely need a blanket or two to wrap up in because it’s gonna be like 60°. And it wouldn’t hurt to bring a huge thermos of hot chocolate either. Woooo summer!
FREE // ALL AGES // Movie starts at dusk

TONIGHT (May 31st) is the ONLY NIGHT OF THE YEAR that the Witch’s Hat Tower is open to the public! You’ve definitely seen it since it sits on the highest natural land area in the city of Minneapolis, but have you been to the observation deck on the top of the tower before? Now is your chance so don’t miss it! Here’s a picture I took last year from the top:
It’s only open for three hours and a LOT of people show up, so make sure to get there early and grab some ice cream because you’ll definitely have to stand in line.
5:30 - 8:30pm
+ live music! + food! + plant sale! + more!
